A Letter To Tom
Recorded by The Country Gentleman
Written by John Duffey

G C G D7 G
I wandered by the village Tom I set beneath the tree
C A7 D7 G
Upon the schoolhouse playing ground that sheltered you and me
C G C G D7
But none are left to greet me Tom and few are left to know
C G D7 G
That played with us upon the green just fifteen years ago

C G D7 G
The river’s running just as still the willows on its side
C Am A7 D7 G
Are larger than they were dear Tom the stream appears less wide
C G C G D7
But in kneeling down beside the stream dear Tom I startled so
C G D7 G
To see how sadly I am changed since fifteen years ago

C G C G D7
But when our time shall come dear Tom and we are called to go
C G D7 G
I hope they’ll lay us where we played just fifteen years ago
D7 G
Just fifteen years ago
